Available to order. Customer service will confirm.
Since they got started in the 1920’s, generations of managers have emerged from the business schools worldwide, slowly taking over organizations both in the public and in the private sector. They are armed with only two objectives: 1) define targets and 2) measure progress. “What gets measured gets done”. And the rest of us are so caught up in the same thinking that we cannot even see that alternative ways of leading exist. This book is about the modern management that makes corporate life dreary and bureaucratic. In a time where we should be enjoying the fruits of centuries of marvelous technological advances and spending more time on the good things in life, our lives are consumed by bureaucracy like never before. Almost nobody likes that, but whose fault is it? Where does the modern management style come from, why do we have it and why does every effort to replace it end up with something that becomes more of the same?
